HGTV & Me!

Have you ever watched a home improvement show & thought "I can do that"? I'm the type of person who thinks I can tackle anything. But my recent attempt at building flagstone steps left me a little "Over My Head". How could I build steps when I couldn't even lift the rocks? So, I contacted my good friends at HGTV & they came to the rescue! I've got blisters & bruises everywhere, but the finished product is totally worth it. The crew was so much fun & totally kid friendly. Plus I have a new love of power tools. I'm sure the execs at the network are hard at work & I'll have my own HGTV series soon called the Helpless Housewife!

Hi Erin,
You’re a smart lady using your celeb status for some free labour.
Not that I am into flowers/bushes etc, but that plant in the foreground looks very much like Rosemary. Is it?
My rosemary is flowering like that at the moment (very early autumn in Australia.)

Good eye Gary! That is Rosemary.

Rosemary?! Where's the Parsley, Sage and Thyme?! The steps look great - I'll be sure to be in touch if you're ever in this area when I need home improvements!
